Critical Studies - Artist and their influences...

The artist I chose was John Howe, on of my favourite artists, he named some of his influences as Frank Frazetta, the Godfather of fantasy art, and Barry Smith, a great comic book artist who has produced some brilliant work for a "Conan" series of comics. The fact that Howe named these people as his influences doesnt surprise me all that much as Howe's work is also very figurative and based on myths and legends or fantasy themes. However, Howe's work is brilliantly informed by his extensive knowledge of arms and armour from many different periods.
